We advise Muslims to be cautious when offering lambs for sacrifice this year (2018) and for the next few years. We have carried out field research and have been informed that as sheep give birth in late winter to early spring, the lambs may be four months old or even younger at the time of Eidul-Adhā; as a result the Qurbanī will not be accepted. This issue is anticipated to continue for the next few years; so Muslims are advised to offer sheep or other animals for sacrifice. It is permissible to offer a hog (also referred to as hogg, hoggerel, hogget) which is a younger sheep. However, whether it is a hog or lamb and is less than one year old it must be more than six months old and should be fat enough to appear to be at least one years old.

People have not only been suffering a cruel siege for the past six years, they are now trapped in a daily barrage of attacks that are deliberately killing and maiming them, and that constitute flagrant war crimes.
Ms Khan has shown a tendency to be divisive in the past and lacks transparency. She lacks support among the Muslim community and the community views her as untrustworthy.
